Jonah, What Were You Thinking?

When the ship on which Jonah sought to flee the Lord ran into a storm, the sailors sought to find out why they had the trouble, and the lot revealed that Jonah was the problem (Jonah 1:7).
When they asked him who he was (Jonah 1:8), he said, “I am a Hebrew; and I fear the LORD, the God of heaven, who made the sea and the dry land” (Jonah 1:9).
Jonah should have known that he could not escape the presence of the Lord, for He created the whole earth, yet, Jonah tried anyway. What was he thinking?
Do we sometimes know the truth, but act contrary to it anyway? Why do we do that? Remind yourself of the truth constantly that you might not sail into a storm of troubles.
